Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips has said that The Stone Roses debut album is "virtually the same song over and over again."

Coyne, who is going to cover the whole album with his bandmates, appeared dismissive of the songwriting ability of Ian Brown and his bandmates when speaking in a new interview with The Sun. Chatting about his forthcoming project, Coyne said: "The one we’re working on now is the Stone Roses’ first record. I don’t really love them but I guess I do by loving their music. It’s virtually the same song over and over again. If you like one song, you’ll probably like all of them. If you hate one, you’ll hate them all."

In 2010, The Flaming Lips released a track-by-track cover of Pink Floyd's seminal 1973 album 'Dark Side Of The Moon' They also remade the debut album by British prog rock group King Crimson 'Playing Hide And Seek With The Ghosts Of Dawn', which covered every song from the band's 'In The Court of The Crimson King'.

Earlier this week Coyne also revealed that he is working on a full-length joint album with Ke$ha, tentatively titled 'Lip$ha.
